Congratulations to Dee Jordan for being awarded a recipient of the 2020 AAG Enhancing Diversity Award

Demetrice (Dee) Jordan, has been a true change agent for diversity in our discipline.

Dee is a tireless mentor and advocate for creating an institutional climate that encourages the development of under-represented minorities as leaders in our discipline.
Ms. Jordan was named MSU’s 2018 Excellence in Diversity, Individual Emerging Progress recipient, as well as the 2018 Black Faculty, Staff and Administrators Association’s Graduate Student Emerging Leader recipient, becoming the first Geographer at MSU to hold these honors.
